Twitter composes that iOS users may see upvotes and downvotes in a few unique styles (up and down arrows, a heart icon and a down bolt, and thumbs up and thumbs down icons) and that it’s trying the feature to comprehend the kinds of answers users find important in a conversation, so Twitter can deal with approaches to show a greater amount of them.” Currently, votes are not public.
While Twitter hasn’t said on the off chance that it intends to add up and down voting as a lasting feature (or what voting means for what you find in your feed), there are clear equals to be attracted to Reddit, which features upvoting and downvoting as a method of surfacing a subreddit’s number one answers reactions and posts.
